Doomsday – Best of 2019

My word, heaviest of all bloggers! It’s the ending of another year. The death of time is inevitable, as is all of our impending doom. Let us commemorate another year with a climactic post. As I was pulling everything together for all of my different best of the year lists, I recognized that doom had another good, not great, year. One of these years, doom is going to blow the doors off of the other subgenres and have straight banger after straight banger and an undeniable best of the year. At the same time, I kind of enjoy the fact…

Kaatayra – Nascido Sob o Signo Incivilizatório

The sultry flora of Brazilian rainforests may not immediately come to mind as a focal point for incensed black metal, but Caio Lemos’ one-man project Kaatayra is well on the way to changing that.
